That's nice to hear. Also that a comment of mine helped you :)

mwambi (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/15/2021 05:26


Thanks, and ... I'm on it ;)
I recently started something with wide pixels and VIC-20 colors, with a few adjustments I think I'll manage to make it fit the MCOL mode... limitations thing (it's only 5-6 colors, should be feasible).

P.S. : oh and this piece (the bird and turret) wouldn't have existed if not for a comment of yours which I discovered by chance, when I had absolutely no intention to enter the weekly challenge (it was about a method for accurately rotating stuff by starting with a top view, and that made the process super easy)

Thanks! About the abundant AA, I just found it better than without. It also contributes to the bird's shape, being super tiny, and can be used for sub-pixel animation if needed.

Very cute, and nice use of the palette. I would REALLY love to see a proper C64 MCOL pic from you sometime. One can dream :)

Incredible in every aspect, and winner in my heart. I have one question. What is the reason for so much AA on the bird?

Gravista (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/10/2021 01:14

Hehe. Great idea for a looping animation.

8Nephila8 (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 3/8/2021 08:53

Another great piece.  Keep it up!

Theoden (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 3/8/2021 02:12

This is my fav.

I love your work, and this entry is

binderbear (Level 5 NES) @ 3/7/2021 18:45

Love the shadows in this piece!

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 3/7/2021 08:58

Wow, what a great entry! I love how the animation teases you with regard to the turning and how much character the bird and the turret itself have.
